RevOps... Role, mindset, or too much control?

The latest trend in sales seems to be "RevOps"

  • But, seems to be more about one person with a control issue rather than driving new business or even additional revenue for that matter..


Its always been around. It's just absolute alignment on company goals with everyone rowing in the same direction... But, now its just another cool shiny new title that VC's like to throw money at lol


Anyone have experience with a solid "RevOps" leader in their org??

Yes. We have a revenue operations person who has been doing it for 5 or so years. We have no idea what he does because heโ€™s always working behind the scenes but yeah more companies seem to be loving this roleย

Yes and no. When theyโ€™re aligned and take ownership - they are your best friend. When theyโ€™re not, they become harder to sell to than the customer itself ๐Ÿ˜…

yeah kinda... recently, I've seen organizations just lean on one person and end up just having someone to blame instead of the org just owning it together.ย

Soo much fluff in a lot of organizations not adding any real value. Bullshit jobs are a plague in the corporate world.

If Sales is a meritocracy and we all have the same expectation to produce, why is the so much talk about pay equity/inequality in sales? Shouldn't the meritocracy part be an equalizer?
